[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The American red squirrel (Tamiasciurus hudsonicus) is a mammal of a million faces. So many different expressions can be portrayed from this animal within a matter of minutes. Intensity, curiosity, fear, anger and even humorous body language postures are not at all uncommon to witness while observing this very candid tree rodent.

Hello Derek

This photo is one of the best portrait shots
I have seen of the American red squirrel,
its expressive pose, the POV on it, the way
it is framed diagonally in the image, with the
light it gives dynamism to the image, with great
focus, sharpness, and details, TFS
